We are an independent Baptist church that is committed to proclaiming the truths of the Bible, preaching the Christ of the cross, and challenging believers to live a Christ-like life. As an independent Baptist church, we are not under the governing rule of any outside council, association, or organization. Our ministry operates under the scriptural mandate of leadership and direction by the pastor, who is assisted by the deacons.
(I Timothy 3:113)
Our purpose is to fulfill God's "Great Commission" for His church. (Matthew 28:19-20) His commission is threefold in its nature. First, we are to "go" or evangelize. This declares our responsibility to take God's message of salvation to the unsaved. Once an individual has trusted Christ as personal Savior, the second aspect of this commission is to be "baptized" by immersion. This is the demonstration of a believer's obedience to Christ and willingness to follow Him. The last aspect of His commission is to "teach" or make disciples. Our obligation is to teach new believers from the Word of God so they can grow and mature in their Christian faith.
•Independent - As an independent Baptist church we are not under the governing rule of any outside council, association, or organization.
•Fundamental - We believe the entire Bible literally.
•Baptist Church - Trinity is a Baptist church because of these biblical distinctions:
1.The Bible as the only rule for faith and practice
2.The autonomy of the local church (the right to self-govern)
3.A regenerated church membership
4.The priesthood of each believer
6.Immersion and the Lord's Supper as the only two ordinances
7.Separation of church and state
